Dazed and confused

October 31, 2008

This has been the longest presidential campaign ever. We know about the two candidates’ positions, opinions and backgrounds than we probably know about our own family histories. And yet:

With the sand in the 2008 campaign hourglass about depleted, Campbell is part of a stubborn wedge of people who, somehow, are still making up their minds about who should be president. One in seven, or 14 percent, can’t decide or back a candidate but might switch, according to an Associated Press-Yahoo! News poll of likely voters released Friday.

The story calls this 14 percent the “persuadables” but perhaps it should be the “befuddled.” What in the world are they waiting on, a sign from the heavens?

    Discernible brain stem activity?

    There is no way anyone is “undecided” in this election. There are simply a number of people out there that won’t “fess up”. I know Doug and his buddies will be really honked off, but like it or not, the elephant in the room is the “Bradley Effect”. This may be 2008, but right or wrong, polls or no polls, the odds of a black dude with the middle name of Hussein becoming the next leader of the free world are mighty slim folks….

    A choice that doesn’t reek?
